Praise for Kristina McBride:
“Fans of R.L. Stine’s Fear Street series and Gretchen McNeil’s Ten will love this intense chiller, with psychological suspense and romantic drama that add to the past pace and confusion Bailey feels as she tries to discern who she can trust. The video, and the inability to remove it from the internet as it continues to impact the girls’ lives, is a sad reflection of the frustrating reality of sexual harassment in our digital age.” ―RT Reviews
"From the painfully high stakes to the heart-pounding timeline, this twisty thriller left me breathless! McBride's tale hits eerily close to home, too, reminding us how quickly things can turn from bad to much, much worse." ―Natalie D. Richards, author of One Was Lost
"McBride’s prose is vivid, creating a tense atmosphere tainted with secrecy and lies. Teens will devour this mystery." ―School Library Journal
"A fast-paced thriller with plot twists, intrigue, and revelations practically on every page. . . . Clever, taut storytelling." Kirkus Reviews on A Million Times Goodnight

"Infused with page-turning mystery, One Moment is as heartbreakingly real as it is unexpectedly romantic." Cat Patrick, author of Forgotten and Revived

But now, four of the 13 girls have gone missing and when Bailey receives a puzzling riddle, she finds the first dead body. She teams up with her brother Tripp, her bff Hannah, and an old flame, Wes, to follow the clues and try to save the remaining girls. But, all is not what it seems, and danger is on their tail.
Like I mentioned above, I didn't figure this one out. The author drops lots of red herrings, so my mind kept jumping around, and at first I would think it one person, and then another. I had several of the pieces, I just didn't put it together. Bravo!
The story line is sinister, with several raw moments and twisty turns. Of course, my first thought was, just tell the police, but the author solved that by having a creepy deputy who Bailey didn't trust. There's a lot of teen drama, and the Dozen aren't just airheads sleeping around. Several of them have scholarships to prestigious schools and colleges.
Bailey is a fun character, and really the only one we see in depth. She is stuck in a romantic hard place, really missing her ex Wes, but loving her new boyfriend Jude. Still, despite the gruesome stuff confronting her, she is brave and pulls through. Like any normal person, she doubts those around her, and her reactions seem true to course.
I didn't really bond with any of the characters, but the fast pace and excitement made that okay. I wanted to know who had done it and most importantly, why. Those questions had be reading through the pages, and I actually didn't read it at night cause it sort of creeped me out, lol. Good job. I'm giving this 4 stars!
I really enjoyed The Bakersville Dozen. McBride crafted a captivating story that seemed "ripped from the headlines", built a great backstory, and filled it with lots of mystery. The thing I always love about mysteries is looking for the pieces of the puzzle, and assembling them in an attempt to solve the crime. McBride was very sly in the way she planted and revealed the clues, which only added to the fun. There were twists, turns, and even some red herrings. I was deceived several times. Just when I thought I knew "whodunit", a piece of information would be uncovered and prove me wrong. I did up being partially right, but I would have never guessed the mastermind behind this nefarious plot.
This book was more than a mystery though. It had all the makings of a great suspense-thriller. There were many times when my heart rate increased, and I found myself biting mynas. There was a spooky quality that permeated most of this tale, and this constant tension that kept me wondering what was next. It all just added to the thrill ride McBride took me on.
This wouldn't be a review by me, if I omitted my thoughts on the romance. I didn't expect it, but it was there, and I really liked it. McBride admirably integrated the romance into the story. It did not seem forced to me, and although it took a looooong time, we finally got some answers and resolutions regarding said romance. I was quite pleased with the way McBride tied up this storyline, as well as all the other loose ends in the book.
This book toyed with my emotions and pulled on my heartstrings. It took me on quite a wild ride, and I was throughly entertained by this fast-paced mystery/thriller.
I loved how we sort of jumped right into the action and got a lot of details up front, it did still leave a lot of questions, but the outline of the story was there. My one compliant was there are a lot of girls introduced up front and on my kindle i would go back to the sheet but if I had the book I could easily flip to the page.
Bailey is one of the girls in the Bakersville Dozen. She has gone through so much after the tape was released although she was listed as the virgin, she believes her life was destroyed. She bonds with the other girls in the group to a certain extent, but still wishes for her own individual life. Bailey was the virgin of the group but does have boy drama of her own, that the book gets into.
The story is setup with a basic outline and then the real story begins when the clues begin coming to Bailey. I ended up not really being able to put the book down I wanted to know what was going to happen to Bailey and the missing girls.
While I was reading I felt like I could narrow down some of the suspects, but the author does a great job keeping you on your toes. I felt like I never knew who I could trust while I was reading the book.
The author does a great job with the relationships in the book. Bailey has different relationships with her family and friends and the author does a great job exploring these. I loved that Bailey was able to question everything and her one goal was getting out alive.
I would suggest reading this over the weekend I got totally sucked in and wanted to know what was going to happen. If you like suspense and thriller books this is a great read. The book is very fast paced and is shorter in length.
